a warm relationship. almost one year later, the israelis have given obama a medal. they appear to be on the same page on iran. >> diplomacy and sanctions have not stopped iran's nuclear programs. diplomacy and sanctions must be augmented by a clear and credible threat of military action. >> we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >> will this story have a happy ending? >> this story will not have a happy ending. what we saw this week was barack obama at his best, connecting with an audience, and he made a compelling case for the need for a two-state solution, the security of israel and the well- being of the region. >> charles? >> the emphasis has been on personality. what happened is obama changed his positions on the settlement and the peace process. he realized he made a terrible mistake in the first term. he insisted on a settlement freeze as a preconditio. it wrecked peace negotiations and stopped everything. he changed, went back and said in a startling statement that if you get a peace agreement, the sttlement will be resolved
the king national memorial. and i would be going back to the mall where i was as a 19 year old as one of the 2 million people who were there for the first inauguration of president barack obama. and just a year later, a couple of years later, going back there to actually see the dedication of that memorial. all of these things would have been inconceivable in 1963. so, when i talk about martin's dream, what i'm really talking about is the expansion of all of our dreams, to include things that we might not imagine. and i guess my hope in doing the work that i do is that a young teenager today would have that same experience i have -- have had, of having the inimaginable -- unimaginable dream come true, things that you can't even imagine happening happen in their lives. i think that's what all of us up here are talking about when we mention martin's dream. one of the other things that i would say is that we need to properly recognize martin luther king as the world leader he is. i think it diminishes him to say he was an african-american civil rights leader. he was that, but he was so m
down on the dispenries. this is what he told barbara walters last year. >> obama: the federal government has a lot to do when it comes to criminal prosecutions. it does not make sense from a prioritization point of view for us to focus on recreational drug uses in state that has already said that understate law that is legal. >> michael: are advocating for legalizing marijuana now concerned he'll change his position again? >> yes, we're very concerned about this because, he turned out to be one of the worst presidents on the issue. the only thing that is sort of reassuring this time around it has been several months since the passage of legal issues and the administration has been very silent on it. they don't want to talk about it at all. the only answer they get from eric holder are some vague promises soon. and the market that marijuana got more votes in colorado than obama did has changed the politics and dynamics a bit. >> michael: yeah that's an interesting fact that i always find kind of funny. jon walker of fire dog lake, thanks for coming into "the
. it was interesting that in the obama recovery, family income went down to $2,500 a year, where during the recession, income went down $1,500 a year. families were doing worse, yet extremely good campaign, and he won despite his disadvantages and he won frankly in a predictable way. he made the election about his opponent. the romney people allowed obama to define romney. this was rather than romney defining romney, and that is why it is important for republicans we do wrong? the idea that the republican party is in some terrible shape -- certainly i do not buy that. not buy that? >> i do not. i have been around since 1968. i have seen terrible shape. i remember watergate, i remember when the 13% of americans republicans, and the national if we should change the name of the party. whispereds not been now. >> for 40 years, the most number of republicans in the house was 192. today we have 230 something, and it is absolutely right to figure out what you did wrong, and the obama people outperformed republicans in a number of ways. the idea that we are on the brink of going out of business is overstated
the past five years, president obama's position on civil unions versus now he's fully in favor of same-sex marriage. hillary clinton, who if she wants to run in 2016, she's going to -- she's in favor of same-sex marriage. any democrat who runs has to be in favor of it. republicans at this point still undecided. >> it's a more dicey territory. quickly, it's amazing to me that people forget, president obama, then senator obama, and then senator clinton, both oppose gay marriage and supported civil unions in the '08 presidential campaign five years ago. now, it's march madness so the tournament is over for me after georgetown. but the good thing is, i still have senate madness. i have the nbc political unit, i can still focus on a bracket and not shed tears. tell me where we stand. >> four match-ups we want to point to today. the 1-16s versus the 8-9s. and ted kennedy, our overall number one, the legislator versus lloyd benson who won our play-in match-up. >> benson beats graham. >> benson beats graham. and lots of votes online, almost 1,000 votes, maybe more. so everyone get out and vote
. in 2008 they passed it for half a year, hoping president obama would get elected. the republican budget is $22 billion less than the spending level. down 1.6% -- 0.6%. democrats want to spend $3 $3.7,815,000,000,000,000. $162 billion or 4.5% more than spending this year. the graemes want to spend $184 billion more than the republicans do. they want to spend $97 billion more than the forecast. we have a process of approach ration bill. they will do the work. they will end up with different numbers. go to the conference committee. they will are have chance to iron it out. does it guarantee it's ironed out? no. but we have a normal process where give and take is likely to occur than if we have something trying to be imposed from the white house or the top of the congress. >> shannon: we're waiting for president's budget. he is required to give it by 4 of february and now it's april. amazing that he has failed to meet the scatchtory -- but on the other hand this could be useful because house and senate says we can't wait for the president. do the business ourselves. >> pal ryan and patty mu
leaders wrote to president obama urging him to move on immigration reform this year. the letter was organized by a bipartisan political policy network technet and included top executives from yahoo! oracle, ebay and microsoft. >> there have been other issues but we view this issue as a defining issue. you know, last century people talked about the arms race. now it's all about the brain race. so whoever has the best brains, the best minds, the best talent is going to win that race. that's what the united states needs, and immigration is at the core of that issue. so when you think of immigration, it's about bringing talent from all over the globe. >> reporter: after facing criticism for not giving away enough of his fortune, zuckerberg made a splash on oprah in 2010 announcing his plan to plunk $100 million into newark, new jersey, schools. two years later, zuckerberg and his wife gave 18 million facebook shares or roughly $500 billion to the silicon valley community foundation for health and education funding. >> and most important things that your administration has done. >> r
neighborhood. the israelis, two years ago obama called for it. it's going to be dicey. iran is still the world's leading sponsor of terrorism,. lou: the president use the expression game changer if it were to occur. was his visit t israel a game changer? >> i think it is a little too early to tell. what we don't know is what those two men said behind closed doors. we should have no illusions here. however warm and cozy it can be. lou: however cozy the relationship. however warm the reception. these gentlemen have distinctly different things when it comes around. >> i almost agree. not entrely. i don't think thee have different agendas. i think that everything that was said, what you heard is that obama and benjamin netanyahu were much closer together are not. what obama said, he said we are not going to allow iran to have nuclear weapons. he said we are not going to allow them to have weapons in an attempt to contain them. they were much closer than they have been. a very key subject. a. lou: let's turn to something that i did not want to hear. that was america and president obama are ready to
. the one thing that you can be certain of, as obama looks at syria and iran, he wants to avoid any kind of entangling war, long expedition nature war like america has fought over the last 10 years. chris: these wars, if we go into iran, does anyone think it's a quick war, in and out, without historic repercussions on the other side? >> absolutely not, which is part of the reason why nobody within the -- there are very few people in the administration that have any sort of appetite for a war in iran. the same goes with syria. we saw with the libya entanglement, we saw sort of barack obama's doctrine. he is going to be looking for very much multinational-type force. he is going to the u.n. he is looking for the french to take a lot of the lead. he is going to be -- but nobody, even with both syria and with iran, there is no nobody particularly at the pentagon who is really wanting to do this right now. and barack obama least of all. chris: michael. >> chris, this poses problems, the perception which i think is accurate of our wearyness causes problems particularly in iran. people don't be
talk to the president 531 times in four years -- >> 521, sorry. >> how many times has president obama had a solo news conference in four years? 29. according to our mark noel ar, who keeps all the records. now, that's a solo news conference. the white house will come back and say he's had several appearances, meaning he's sat down with an individual reporter or he has appeared with a foreign leader or answered questions in the oval office. but we're talking about news conferences, closely defined. >> and this is with president ronald reagan, who moved news conferences to prime time the networks of course carrying them in the evening. here he is posing a question or president reagan. >> mr. president, you've said several times recently that the accusation that bothered you most is that you don't care about the poor and disadvantaged. >> well, this is the thing, bill, that we've been trying to correct. it was really precable. cable was in its infancy. >> president reagan had 2/3 of his news conferences in prime time. why? in order to reach over the the press and directly to the public b
the biggest point of tension between president obama and prime minister netanyahu. and it was important that the two of them struck the same tone and time frame in their joint press conference. president obama has talked about a year or so before iran might make a decision or move in important ways on its controversial nuclear program. and president -- prime minister netanyahu talked about a faster timeframe, greater potential capability and yet at the press conference he agreed with the president. so that carves out more time for diplomacy and other options before we get to this big question of whether there might be a military strike. >> syria obviously a huge topic for him there too in so many of the countries he visited and neighbors as well. and vitally in what goes on in syria. i'm curious whether you think it influence how those other countries are responding to the crisis in syria or whether really a lot of people feel it didn't change much at all. >> well, i think we're seeing a turning point in the united states. there is a higher profile in terms of the kind of background act
's the thing. the politics around gay marriage are changing and changing fast. it's been less than a year since president obama himself dropped his opposition to gay marriage in that interview with our colleague, robin roberts. and now, even some prominent republicans are settling on the same position. >> and, rick, you study these political poll lines. what is the trending telling us right now? >> it is moving so fast. in 2004, during george w. bush's re-election, we asked in a poll if gay marriage should be legal. and only 32% said yes. this month, that number is up to 58%. that's a tectonic shift. >> rick klein, with the bigger picture, as always. rick, thank you. >>> we turn overseas to the vatican, where pope francis celebrated his first palm sunday mass, to begin the holy week leading up to easter. from the steps of st. peter's, he urged the crowd of worshippers to be humble and young at heart. he toured the square in his popemobile, open to the crowd, despite the concern of his security detail. kissing babies and shaking hands there. >>> in rome tomorrow, everyone watching something else
important elements of that act is going into effect starting later this year, and that is the insurance exchange, where people who are not currently insured, unemployed, self-employed or the not have employer coverage will be able to go into a marketplace and get affordable insurance. >> president obama signed the historic health care legislation three years ago this weekend. >>> coming up next at 6:00, history in the making. the case headed to the supreme court this week that could effe effect same sex marriage in california and everywhere. >>> pope francis going offscript on palm sunday with a story from his childhood. >>> and one of the bay area's most harrowing roadways finally becoming a reality. >>> the debate over same sex marriage is headed for the supreme court this week in not one, but two cases. one of those cases is california's prop 8. the other is whether the federal government can refuse to recognize same sex marriages in states where they are legal. brian moore has this preview. >> reporter: people have been camping outside the supreme court for days to witness history.
, and the nasdaq lost ten points. on the domestic front, president obama called upon congress to, quote, finish the job on immigration. speaking during a citizenship ceremony at the white house, president obama stressed the importance of getting something done. >> we have known for years that the immigration system is broken, not doing enough to harness the ingenuity of those who work hard to find a place here in america, and after avoiding the problem for years, the time has come to fix it once and for all. the time's come from the comprehensive, sensible immigration reform. lou: the president went on to put a time line on the issue saying he wanted congress to debate immigration reform next month, and that he wants a bill to sign as soon as possible. he's rallying support for gun control, and new york city mayor michael bloomberg is picking 7:the slack, pumping $12 million of his own money into a national ad campaign trying to persuade senators to support expanded background checks, and cbs learned the hard way not to mess with american's veterans or my fox news colleague. the network angered
is the underlying hatred even though public opinion changes radically from month to month the year-to-year germans were asked about their opinions of u.s. presidency george to view bush fell to the low of coal% but obama was elected and approval was 92% was that a population of haters? no. they to make discriminating judgments on the basis of how they assess the new leader of the same country so western europeans were unhappy with the leader they saw as an inarticulate proponent of unilateral action and who had a swagger in his step and not interested in their opinion and when the president left office in the new president seemed to be very good at articulating why it was in u.s. interest to be a multi a latterly, seek cooperation with other countries and embody a set of ideals about america as the united states is a land of opportunity all of a sudden it was very popular so there is not the deep and underlying consistent hatred of united states but it is rare. but foreigners can make distinguishing judgments of different aspects and behave accordingly. >>host: why should we care which germans thi
is jewish. a personal friend of the obamas reads the emancipation proclamation each year and the president apparently does a solid farrow impersonation. [ ♪ "world news tonight" ♪ ] >> stephanie: paul ryan cut the funding for the harriet tubman monument. he doesn't believe in the underground railroad. >> they read the proclamation. the supreme court has agreed to take up a new affirmative action case. it concerns a 2006 michigan ballot initiative that changed the state constitution to prohibit affirmative action. the supreme court has an affirmative case outstanding has yet to rule on a challenge to the university of texas admission system even though it heard that case last october. so that's our news. from captain america's underpants. we're back after the break. stay with us.

they are are now realizeing that their taxes have gone up. way up in some cases. and obama care which was supposed to save them $2,500 a year is busting their budgets as the cost of their healthcare is soaring. ultraliberal comedian bill maher must have met with his accountant and gotten his tax bill. here is what he said. >> rich people i'm sure you would agree with this actually do pay the freight in the country. something like 70%. and here in california i just want to say liberals you could actually lose me. it is outrageous what we are paying. over 50%. i'm willing to pay my share but it is ridiculous. >> mike: like he realizes between the federal tax hike and california's highest income tax in the nation he is going to now be paying about 60% of his income in taxes. and democratic strategist donna brazil who i really respect and like noted that her health insurance was sharply higher than before obama care and she was shocked. donna said this. she said just got off the phone with my healthcare provider asking them to explain why my premium jumped up. no good answer. well, donna needs to watc
of that country. "the washington post" has come out with an article today that questions whether or not the obama administration has a contingency plan two years into this conflict. the administration has been vague about what they want to do if a red line is crossed with chemical weapons or what the plan is moving forward. do you think that is because they don't want to release the plan to the public because it's classified or do you think they maybe don't have a plan? >> i hope it's because they don't want to release it to the public. i worry that they haven't formulated one. we always have to understand in the middle east, and i think it's taken the obama administration, it's taken the president and his team a longtime to realize that typically in the middle east we're not confronted with a good option and a bad option we are confronted by crummy options and awful options. and that's the situation in regard to syria, which on the one hand you have the iranian back bashar al-assad regime we. don't want to see iran increase its power in the region, on the other hand the rebels are a very mixed b
for this opportunity and we will seize it as long as we seize it together. >> president obama is back in the country today returning his focus to the progressive agenda he outlined in his second inaugural address, on gun control, immigration, marriage equality, the president and the country and seven years ago, 63% of the country supported a pathway to citizenship. this year, that number has jumped nine points. a critical shift in public opinion and is not just immigration. today people are already lining up outside of the supreme court to show their support for marriage equality. this week, the court will hear arguments challenging the defense of marriage act and a ban on same-sex marriage. the court has evolved on this issue dramatically. 17 years ago, only 27% of americans were in favor of same-sex marriage. today, well over half the court supports marriage equality. sometimes change is slow. sometimes it's hard to see. sometimes it gets lost in the daily battles out of washington. but this is real. this is what progress looks like. the president and the country are winning the progressive argume
eight years of obama, new leadership around the country that don't have the same affection for the clintons that her school or her age class does, how does she get them enthusiastic enough to face a republican opponent if they can come up with a formidable one. she has a lot to weigh. i think she can make the right decision but it's not a slam dunk decision. >> kelly, what is the sense in washington? the clintons, either president clinton or secretary of state hillary clinton have been on the scene every day there for two decades and now they are gone for a moment. what is the sense, the video av? >> i think her making this decision i think you'd see a new generation of democrats who would flood to the possibility of that first woman in the white house. i think that is something that would awaken a lot of enthusiasm and even possibly some of those sort of suburban republican women who would be open to looking at her as a possible candidate. i think reverend sharpton's point is strong about the idea that talent that was around them many of those folks have moved on to the pr
precludes the statute you refer to? >> look. says therhetoric position that president obama is akin to year ago racial bigotry. look. we know how to deal with racial bigot in this country. deprive them and of all sorts of opportunities. that is the path of which things will be headed quite quickly. we welcome that. and not be good for the country. of aere is a declaration fundamental constitutional right to marry a person of the same- sex. --20 talk about the analogy, can you talk about the analogy? >> the change a popular opinion will have on the justices. you have one hypothesis is that the election returns. that is a cliche. they will be comforted by the fact that they're not getting too far ahead the american people. then you have the alternative which is being strongly argued by the other side. this is just a moment not to get involved. way you can tell what will affect which the justice which way. in terms of the roe v wade specter out there and the thision of continued war, is backed up empirically. these issues are fundamentally different in that because unlike abortion, and there i
netanyahu could use obama as a kind of foil for the last four years. i think he clearly achieved that. he had to re-establish the two state solution. democratic israel and democratic palestines and he did not -- he succeeded in doing that. what is still open is can he get these talks going again? richard is right. the short term is about iran and syria, but we have to make some progress and kerry stayed behind trying to get that going. >> more from you two as we move on to other topics later on in the program. thank you both. >>> we now want to turn to the debate over gun safety. mayor michael bloomberg of new york has announce d a big push o put pressure on lawmakers who will will vote on new gun control measures in congress. i discuss that and some other topics including the middle east when i sat down with him this weekend in new york. mr. mayor, welcome back to the program. >> thank you for having me. >> always good to have you. big week in the gun debate. i'll get to that in just a minute. let me start with the president's significant trip to the middle east. he's returned. do you th
and not this sequester. we talked about it before it's not a spending cut it's a decrease on the increase year to year. and is it a republican victory? sure, why not. stuart: it's an obama loss. >> and a tax-- >> it's an obama loss and he's got the budgets outlined during the beginning of his second term. >> we're still losing and we can call it a republican win or obama loss, it doesn't matter. we're still going to tack on 800 billion to a trillion dollars in new deficit for this year. you know, you look at paul ryan's budget, for example, ten years down the road, 41 1/2 trillion dollars in spending and that was supposed to be a victory, because the democrat's version was 46 1/2 trillion dollars, we're still outspending our means. still a broken system. d.c. really has to figure out how to get a balance, a balanced budget would be a win. stuart: in the short-term if i'm a trader, trading stocks, for example, i think this is a win for republicans and i think this is a win for me as an investor. stocks go uu. you say? >> well, i think you're conflating. and 20 years trading and what i told you last tim
was not reworded. calling the obama health care plan, which was their own only a few years earlier, socialism was not reworded. that means they have to begin to rethink themselves, and importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in opposition so that was an important change that creates a new dynamic not that's going to solve our problems, but there is going to be no sitting around the campfire in washington making nice with one another. but the possibility now exists for a real effort and a successful effort to deal with our most pressing problems. >> too familiar washington faces, thomas mann and norman borkenstein it's even worse than it looks. this is book tv on c-span2. >>> next, we hear from dina hampton in her book little red she profiles the graduates of the little red schoolhouse and elizabeth warren high school of new york city some ominous with progressive politics. this is about half an hour. [applause] thank you. i'm going to start by saying what i
more than a year since president obama ended war in iraq bringing the u.s. troops home. with little influence left in that war-torn country trying to rebuild the secretary is having trouble urging iraq's leaders to stop aiding iran and allowing the overflights of iran, what we believe to be weapons, ammunitions over to syria. the iranians are using iraqi airspace to make that happen. john kerry wants it to stop. how did he do? joining me now a man who fought in that war, c.e.o. of concerned veterans for america, pete hegseth. how much leverage does the skraeufrt have? >> not very much. you might say that this is our chickens coming home to roost. when you don't follow through and don't have influence and don't have a relationship then the prime minister of iraq is more likely to hedge towards iran and his neighbors to the east than he is to help us because we don't have that influence. the folks we have left in baghdad don't have a mandate to operate. john kerry shows up asking for a favor and he can't get one. >>brian: he can't get one because they don't need us right now. but they
, their first in four years, it garnered no republican support and four democratic nays. still, obama's 2012 campaign manager, jim mussina hailed it as progress. >> i think the senate passing the budget is a good step, along the lines of the prosals the president has laid out. >> much like the paul ryan house plan, the senate blueprint is a statement of priorities. ryan's plan consists entirely of spending cuts, $4.6 trillion of them, 66% of which come from programs for poor and working-class americans. on the other side, democratic plan calls for $100 billion in stimulus and an even ratio in spending cuts to new revenue from closing tax loopholes on higher earners. surprising no one, the senate's balanced approach was rejected wholesale by republicans. in their response to president obama's weekly address, tea partiyer mike lee tried to explain the gop's resistance. >> to republicans, the budget isn't just about dollars, it's about sense, common sense. >> in this case, common sense equals amendment-a-rama, as the senate debated the budget, republicans in the upper chamber went after their l
of the door were out of the door before the year and. -- the end of the year. >> connecting the neural dots. on atting the nation course to map the active human brain, president obama may have picked a challenge more daunting than afghanistan or finding common ground with his republican opponents. as we record this, it has not been announced, but i did not see your name in this story. are you involved? >> oh, very much so. this is an exciting opportunity. this is right on the edge of what is possible, which is what nih should be about. we have the ability to understand the brain in certain ways, but there are many areas where we do not have a clue about the way it works. for instance, we can record individual brain cell, a neuron, we can see the whole thing, but there is this enormous gap in between about how the circuits in the brain function in order to be able to move my hand or to be able to look at you and process that information, or to lay down a memory. we do not know how that works. with technology, yet to be invented, so a lot of this is going to be nanotechnology, what we need to
of power to the state to demand you pay your intern. >> the power is being used. the last 40 years have been a libertarian's dream. that's why we have unpaid workers. >> you are both democrats. it is obama's -- if you are not going there has to be certain criteria. one is the employer der rives no immediate advantage of the intern. on occasion it's operations must be actually impeded. i have had earn terns impede my work i try to get rid of them. >> let me ask you, john, if fox wanted to do a news show we say we don't know how it's going to work out but why don't we throw you academic credit we will see how it goes and we will figure out how to pay you. would you accept that? >> maybe not at this point in my career but it's my choice. that's what freedom is supposed to be about. >> guess who is exempted from this? government. the department of labor uses interns. the white house uses interns. >> only for-profit companies. >> this has been the law since 1947 the obama administration has done nothing but reiterate and reissue these basic issue. >> if this rule were enforced it would kill
the one that is going to win the order of the day. obama changed that in 2004. -- 2012. this generation of 18 to 40 year-old's see the world through less of red and blue and more purple. that is something that we will have to adopt, number one. no. 2, when you are looking at the broader landscape of what he is saying, i would agree, but here is the problem. why not chris christie? when chris christie is not allowed to speak at a national conservative convention because he did not pass the test on a few issues or he embraced the president during a time of crisis in his state, which is nothing short of ironic, because as a former state official i can tell you that when a hurricane hit maryland and we had devastation from snowstorms and all of that, yes, you look to your federal partners for help. at that time it was true with bush and we were very appreciative of the help that came from the federal government. why would chris christie be less appreciative of help from the federal government at a time when his state was under devastation? when we look at our politics through the prism, a l
people on board the gaza-bound aid flotilla nearly three years ago. on may 30, 2010, israeli commandos raided the mavi marmara in international waters, killing nine turkish activists, including one u.s. citizen. president obama brokered netanyahu's's apology for the attack, which the israeli leader made friday at the very end of obama's first presidential visit to israel. in a phone call to the turkish prime minister, that tianeman apologize for "any errors that could have led to the loss of life." erdogan said the apology was one step toward normalizing relations between israel and turkey. is rumored nine of our citizens in international waters -- israel murdered nine of our citizens in international waters, they even tried to use negotiators to repair the relations between told them there would be no normalization of relations unless they apologized, paid compensation, and lifted the embargo on palestine. the parties mocked the government for believing [indiscernible] the phone call was a step forward. >> israel did not agree to turkey's call to in the blockade of gaza. roughly adapt

, that people neither need no want forcing 60-year-old women to have maternity benefits and somehow that's supposed to cost less money? that's not medicine, that's magic and even bill maher personally shelled out a million dollars for obama's reelection is now wishing to get his money back to cover his tax load. i found out that liberals love fair share when they think someone else is going to eat it. but why are successful people like bill maher finished severely with a tax rate the 60% when many pay nothing? let's face it, most of us don't really hate paying taxes, we just don't want to be played as suckers and pay half or more of our income while half the country contributes nothing and drains the tub by collecting endless government give aways. i don't mine helping people in poverty who don't have enough to eat or bills are astronomical because of developmental disability and calamity and making sure that our military men and women and veterans are providing every benefit they were promised. but most of us, very much mind the stupid spending that's so be absurd that it would be funny

it was abundantly clear, in your view, that the red line that president obama has set has been crossed in terms of chemical weapons. what's the discrepancy? >> well, if you look at the body of intelligence, kate, over the last two years, it is the evidence is mounting, and so when the president said august 20th of last year, that if they were going to move chemical weapons or use them, that would change his calculus, and here's the problem that presents itself now, i think, for the president of the united states and our national security moving forward, syria is deteriorating badly. we have a growing and mounting amount of evidence that says chemical weapons were used at least at some point by the assad regime in some quantity. and so we have 70,000 dead. it's deteriorating, it's now spilling over by way of refugees into jordan and turkey and now you have al qaeda elements, the front knocking on the door on the southern area near israel. this is a catastrophe if we let this deteriorate without some u.s. leadership rallying the opposition and regaining the trust with our arab league allies. all
